Hi All,

Thanks for the praise on the new website. Just a quick note that we will be checking these forums regularly, so if you see something out of whack, please let us know, no matter how small. We value your feedback on helping make this the best kiting site around.

Oh, Avatars are working cheese

Yup, I like the updates too.

OK, just so you don’t think you’ve got it too easy grin ....

1) When viewing the forum at the top level, or looking at the list of topics, the “Posted Date” is stuck in “American” format of mm-dd-yyyy.  I went to my profile to look for some appropriate setting and set the time format to be “European”, but it hasn’t done anything with the dates.  This might sound trivial, but it’s very confusing format when you’re not used to it.  It’s only when viewing a topic that the dates show in “dd Month yyyy” format.
2) One great feature of the old forum was that for each topic where there were new items to read, there was an icon to click on to go to the first unread item within that topic.  I don’t see anything similar on this new one.
3) All the web pages (main site and forum) are a fixed width, which means that with my browser (which isn’t full screen), I have to scroll horizontally to see everything.  I have my browser at such a size that I can have 2 of them side by side, so it’s narrower than the sites fixed width.

Quite excited about the new gear and can’t wait to get my hands on all of it.

You need to change the hyperlink colours on the forum, nearly impossible to read.

Small update here on our progress of fine tuning the website:

1 - hyperlinks in signatures are adjusted to be visible!
2 - Forum date localization - we are looking into this. If it matters to you, it matters to us.
3 - We have added a ‘Your image is missing’ banner for signatures and inline images. (.Joel, your signature image is using a broken link)
4 - We have enabled the use of images in signatures, and you can upload the images to the OR server.
5 - Fixed width, well, err….... that is sort of a darned if you do, darned if you don’t issue we struggled with. Suffice to say it is fixed width at this time, though the old site was also fixed width, albeit a bit narrow.
6 - News is back online for kiting and surfing. We will have the news moved into the new format shortly.

That is all for now. More updates as the week winds up to the weekend.

PS. Almost forgot, there is a link on the main forum page for New Posts. Although not forum by forum, it will show you what is new and unread.
